I jumped into a ta-152 to see if theres any improvement in low speed handling. Wow, I pulled full back stick until the speed got to 350 km/h (at 500m alt). Then it spun. Then I recovered at 200m alt from the spin http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Wohohoho http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. I got myself a new favourite ride.
It also feels that the roll rate is much much higher, plus theres much more longitudinal stability. Also there appears to be (more?) roll-yaw coupling - the nose moves sideways in roll much more, but it imediately centers when I let go the stick.

Right - Then I jumped into a bf109K. Well - same story - more stable, but also more roll-yaw coupling. The coupling actually makes it feel considerably more real than in 4.01, I like it.

Then I flew the ta-152 again - it seems that it's actually roll acceleration that is higher (also?) - it reverses roll direction like a feather. Its not the aileron responce that is higher - it's the inertia that is lower - the rolling stops almost as soon as I let go the stick (little to no opposite aileron needed)

The only handling minus in having more stable a/c is that as soon as you release the back-pull, the nose quickly goes down, to its new equilibrium position - it will be a nightmare to anticipate where that new position will be, and aim high-angle/high-deflection shots in a turning fight (that constantly changes turn radius).

Overall, it seems like a/c have got less inertia in all three axis.

Well, Im going back to testing other a/c..

Nice! I can´t wait to try it myself!
